Skanska appoints California operations vice president to oversee $1.2bn LA transit project

Swedish contractor Skanska has promoted Justin Waguespack as operations vice president for its Californian civil operations.

He will lead Skanska’s $1.2 billion Regional Connector Transit Project in downtown LA for the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (LACMTA), a 3km long light-rail system connecting the Metro Gold Line to the 7th Street/Metro Center Station with three new stations.

Waguespack joined Skanska in 2007 and has worked on multiple major projects, including leading a 500 strong team during the pandemic.

Waguespack holds a bachelor’s degree in construction management from Louisiana State University with a minor in business management.

James Bailey, Skanska USA Civil in California executive vice president, said: “For the last 14 years, Justin has been instrumental in the execution of a wide variety of civil projects.

“His thoughtful leadership, team-oriented approach and heartfelt dedication to his work have helped solidify Skanska’s reputation as a leading producer of quality civil projects on the West Coast.”
